And We Knew How to Dance: Women in World War I

Haut de la page

The wartime accomplishments of women in World War I are celebrated in this video. Twelve Canadian women, aged between 86 and 101, recall their entry into what had formerly been a "man's world" of munitions factories and farm labour. And We Knew How to Dance suggests that their commitment and determination helped lead the way to momentous postwar social changes for women, such as voting rights and expanded employment opportunities.
